Hi there, Happy New Year! It's business as usual here on my site, but please note that the pandemic is still causing disruptions with Royal Mail, so you order might take longer to arrive, and apologies if you are still waiting for your parcel... in some areas they are taking up to a month to arrive. Please also note that I am not currently sending orders outside of the UK due to postal disruptions. I hope to do so again in a few weeks. I will have more joggers coming back into stock in 1-2 weeks. Thank you and keep safe, Lucy x

How to make a dog's life a bit more interesting...

I have a cocker spaniel called Isla, I adore her to bits... she's lovely, albeit a bit bonkers! Other than going for a walk she sits and watches me rush about the house and without wishing to be too anthropomorphic about it, I worry that she must be so bored! So been thinking of things to make her life a little more interesting... here are a few ideas for spicing up a dogs life a bit! Much like our life, but even more so as there isn't much else going on, a dog's life is all about its food, and they pretty much wait around for it all day... and then it's over in around 3 seconds and they have to wait another 12 hours for it! So the following ideas are all food related! 

- Feed them a meal via a slow feeder instead of a bowl, it will make it last a bit longer!

- Scatter their meal around it around the lawn so they have to find it

- Put their meal in a Kong if its in a pouch, or if dry kibble then add water and wait until it's wet enough to squash it in

- Put dry kibble meals in a wobbly kong dispense feeder

- Give your dog a chewy rawhide ring to gnaw on, not only keeps them entertained but good for the digestion and teeth too!

- Fill up a Kong with a bit of peanut butter (not too much as very calorific!) or Kong filler and your dog will try to lick it out for hours!

- Make a doggy lolly! Fill up a Kong with moistened kibble (as above) and put it in the freezer until frozen. 

- Give your dog an ice cube! This amuses my spaniel for a while...

- Smear peanut butter or marmite on a rope toy.

If you have any other tips for keeping your dog entertained please list them below! Thanks, Lucy x
